Apache server "Error" message

I'm using an Apache webserver to develop a project using joomla.

Some days ago I did a backup restoration in Joomla (using Akeeba Backups) and now, whenever I try accessing, both the site's backend and frontend, I get a blank page with nothing but the word "Error".

I don't know if the backup is in anyway related to this error as I'm not that much experienced, but I haven't touched the server since then. Any help? How can I find the error's origin?

Apache loads other old website after rebooting

I've got a little problem: Whenever I restart my Raspyberry Pi B, an old version of my website gets loaded.

Before the restart, I changed whole files and deleted some. But even the deleted files get restored after rebooting the rapsberry.

It's really annoying if my new website gets thrown away ...

I don't know if it's the Apache service or something different.

Anyone knows a solution for that?

Thanks in advance!

Huge issue with XAMPP’s backup and restore feature

So I've used the XAMPP backup and restore tool for backing up all of my websites and databases from my local XAMPP installation on my mac. Instructions for how to do this can be found on the XAMPP website under the 'backup/restore my XAMPP system' section. The result of the backup was a 900MB shell script file.

Now I've just tried to restore the backup file generated by the script to a new installation of XAMPP using the command sudo /Users/Joel/Desktop/, but I'm getting some strange errors:

Joels-MacBook-Pro-2:~ Joel$ sudo /Users/Joel/Desktop/
Checking integrity of files...
egrep: md5sums: No such file or directory

The backup sofware is not able to handle different XAMPP versions.
Your backuped configuration from  may not work with 1.8.2-6 and may need manually corrections.

Let's try...

Restoring MySQL user databases...
/Users/Joel/Desktop/ line 193: mysql.sql: No such file or directory
MySQL user FAILED: cat: output: No such file or directory
Backup complete. Have fun!
You may need to restart XAMPP to complete the restore.
Joels-MacBook-Pro-2:~ Joel$ 

Why isn't the version of my previous XAMPP installation showing on line 12? I don't actually remember which version of XAMPP I had installed so this is my problem. Is there any other way of finding this out?

Also, has anyone else actually used this backup and restore script successfully before? I'll be absolutely gutted if I've lost all of my work because of this!!!

SVN revision corrupted

My SVN revision 22026 is corrupted. I have verified by using svnadmin verify command. I manually verified the 22026 file in db\revprops and in \db\revs folder. 22026 file is empty in revprops folder but content is available in revs folder. It looks like revision 22026 property file is corrupted or empty.

I have used RSYNC backup so my backup also having same issue. How to rectify this issue.
